5 Fall Gems in the Willamette Valley

5 Fall Gems in the Willamette Valley

From Sauvie Island to Beaver City, our growers aren’t slowing down anytime soon. Corn Mazes, pumpkin patches, bounce houses, our growers do it all for Fall! Our family farmers work hard to create amazing family experiences. Here are 5 gems in the Willamette Valley you should visit before Fall is over!

The Melon Shack

Right in the heart of Beaver country, the Melon Shack is owned and operated by the Winn family. By summer the Winns grow NORPAC green beans by the truck load (as well as delicious melons of course), but in the Fall they mix it up. Carving pumpkins, pie pumpkins, corn stalk bundles and a super spooky Haunted Corn Maze!

Grandpa’s Fresh Market

Pumpkins, popcorn, face painting, & hay rides… oh my! Grandpa’s Fresh Market has been a pillar in the Crabtree community for generations. When the Christiensen family isn’t growing green beans and corn for NORPAC, they operate an ever expanding smorgasbord of fall fun!

Fazio Farms

Up north, in the beautiful Sauvie Island area, after the broccoli and green bean fields are cleared, the Fazio family has a whole Fall carnival! Hayrides, a corn maze, games, a bounce slide and, naturally, a pumpkin patch! There is something for everyone, the tall and the small. It is next to impossible to be bored at the Fazio’s.

Wavra Farms

Just off highway 22, a hop skip and a jump from NORPAC central, the Wavra family transitions from corn and green beans, to all of the fall fun! They have the your classic pumpkin patch and corn maze, but you’ll also find huge slides, barrel rolling, a bounce house and very friendly goats that will let you pet them.

Beilke Family Farm

If you’re looking for something a little different to do this fall, the Bielke family is here! Blueberry growers by summer, the Bielke family also operates one of the only U-Pick apple orchards left in the Willamette Valley. Strap on your boots, grab your buckets and load up on all different types of apples for all of your fall baking needs!
